Board of Directors Update: During 2020 and early 2021 the ERA board of directors met virtually. Now that the students are back in person full-time, the board members are meeting in person. Engaging with the community and making board meetings more accessible is very important to the ERA board of directors. The November 16th board meeting will be held virtually (zoom meeting info to come) and feedback on meeting preferences will be solicited during the upcoming Parent/Guardian Survey that will be sent out mid-November.

Staff Candy Apple Bar: If you’d like to donate to the staff candy apple bar on November 19th, please sign up via the signup genius. Thank you for helping us treat our amazing teachers!

National Art Honors Society:  We are so excited to make our ornaments again this year in order to raise funds for our society.  We will be working on them over the course of the next month but wanted to give you a chance for customization and order priority! Pick up will be Dec. 4th at the ERA Children’s Market. Here is an order form along with some visual examples, check it out and support our student artists!  https://forms.gle/m6RCFP83H9wfcins8
